CSIO5* Rome 2016
As always, VDL Groep Verdi TN N.O.P. provided a high entertainment factor when he had finished his round keeping Maikel van der Vleuten busy on top. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.
Kent Farrington and Voyeur flew over the fences in the winning round, but with four faults from the first round the American rider had to settle for 5th place.
Beezie Madden rode the well jumping Breitling LS in the Grand Prix.
Malin Baryard-Johnsson's Corporal VDL did an impressive first round. And when he was done he stopped at the in-gate, turned around, looked at the audience as if he wanted more applause.
Billy Twomey and Diaghilev in action.
Harrie Smolders and Bokai in the triple combination that caused a lot of trouble in the first round.
Gerco Schröder's Glock's Lausejunge got an early fault on the second fence - the one on the photo - and it looked like he got really angry with himself after. The rest of the course he jumped fantastic.
Second placed Peder Fredricson with H&M All In showed top form in Rome.
Carlos Lopez and Admara 2 giving everything over the last fence.
Marcus Ehning and the stunning Cornado NRW going through the finish line.
As if there were not fences enough, Natale Chiaudani's Almero 12 added an imaginary one.
Simon Delestre and the amazing little rubber ball Hermès Ryan.
Steve Guerdat rode the beautiful Bianca in the Grand Prix.
